Converged Assessment Framework

The CAF is…

  • a Data Collection Tool to collect social & labor data from production facilities
  • a robust verification methodology to verify the accuracy of the data gathered
  • a data hosting & sharing system including the SLCP Gateway and Accredited Hosts

The CAF is not…

  • a scoring or ranking system, certification program or Code of Conduct…

… instead it results in a standard-agnostic verified data set which is compatible with existing scoring systems

Step 1: Data Collection

  • The Data Collection Tool is used to self-assess working conditions
  • It helps a facility understand their data and identify potential improvement opportunities
  • Facility can choose to do a self-assessment (on their own) or joint- assessment (with external support)
  • The Tool is accessed via one of the Accredited Hosts & can be completed online or downloaded and completed off-line
  • Split into three parts: Compliance; Management Systems; Above & Beyond

Step 2: Verification

Step 3: Data Hosting & Sharing
